THE only show to be endorsed by the Cash family - the Johnny Cash Roadshow will be back on top form for 2020 with a brand new show.

And it’s coming to Malvern Theatres, and you might well think The Man in Black himself is back.

A spokesman said: “This year award winning Clive John pays homage to Cash’s Career as the Man In Black, alongside his iconic Wife June Carter played by Emily Heighway the Roadshow Horns, and on selected shows The ‘Carter Sisters’.

“With all the hits such as Man in Black, Walk the Line, Ring of Fire, Boy Named Sue along-side some of the darker more atmospheric songs from the later American Recordings such as The Man Comes Around and Hurt making this year’s show an emotional roller-coaster of songs through Cash’s career, packed together in one fantastic evening’s entertainment.”

The spokesman added: “With standing ovations every night The Johnny Cash Roadshow is the biggest and best celebration of Johnny Cash in the world today guaranteed to leave you wanting more.”

And what of Clive John; how convincing is he?

“His resemblance is uncanny” said Rosanne Cash, and Caitlin Crowell, the granddaughter of Johnny Cash, added: “Clive captures my grandfather just as he was.

“It’s absolutely authentic to the point where it felt as if it wasn’t a tribute.”

Lasse Lindfors, author and lifelong friend of Johnny Cash said: “Clive sings moves and acts just like the ‘Man in Black.’ The Johnny Cash legend will continue.”

The date for the diary is January 25.
